Sustainable Floating House Concept


Sustainable-Floating-House-Concept-2 Sustainable-Floating-House-Concept-1

Designed by Singapore-based architect Dymitr Malcew, the sustainable floating house is the perfect way to get away from all the daily stresses one experiences living in an urban environment. This house literally floats on the water, and thanks to the floor to ceiling windows adorning the dwelling, residents get to fully enjoy these 360-degree ocean views from sun up to sunset. The home was created for French firm H2ORIZON, and was constructed from sustainable materials. The residence is quite spacious with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room kitchen, and terrace. The home also features luxury finishes throughout, and with the ability to gently float through the water, you’ll be able to enjoy everything nature has to offer without causing any disruption.

Manhattan Micro Loft By Specht Harpman Architects

It’s really hard to make 425 square feet look spacious but Specht Harpman Architects managed to do just that in this once awkward New York City apartment that’s set at the top of a six-story building. By creating  living platforms, they were able to accommodate all the necessities an apartment might need while keeping the space open and bright. Helping with that was the fact that they were working with over 24 feet of vertical space, making it possible to create the multiple layers of  rooms. The compact bathroom is hidden away on the bottom floor beneath the staircase. While the kitchen is small, it remains open to the living room. They kept the cabinets and countertops white which helps keep it bright and airy. Every detail was kept simple as not to overwhelm the tight quarters and it really appears larger than the actual square footage. Up the first set of stairs you have the bedroom layer which seems to almost float above the living room below.

Smart Mirror 2.0


01 04

From the kitchen to the bathroom or living room creative and useful furniture and home decor help us create a house to love. And it’s much more interesting than ordinary products make unordinary things. For example, designer Robert Grynkofki created the Mirror 2.0, which uses voice command, face and gesture recognition technology. Two LCD displays are placed behind a one-way mirror with a camera for face recognition, sensors for motion control and a microphone for voice control. To keep you entertained the mirror plays your music or movies, displaying your e-book or streaming the news. If that is not enough, it even communicates reminders or gives you updates on the weather; it can moderate the room temperature and dim the lights.

29 Square Meters


29squaremeters_00

As the name suggests, “29 square meters” is an apartment which covers exactly that amount of space (roughly 312 sq ft). Located in Wroclaw, Poland, the tiny home has been efficiently maximized by local architecture firm 3XA, who added a semi-mezzanine (an entire second floor level was not possible due to the restricting 12ft ceilings) above the bathroom and hallway, allowing for a rather spacious sleeping area. Below, the living room, kitchen and dining area were all knocked into one open-plan space, giving a sense of freedom and airiness. Additionally, to deceive the senses, a door leading to nowhere was added to one of the walls.

Cape Town-based architects SAOTA completed this architectural gem. Head Road 1815 was designed for a young couple, wanting a dynamic and striking home, primarily for themselves, with guest accommodation separated from their own living areas. The luxury property can be found in Fresnaye, Cape Town, South Africa. The luxury Cape Town property views towards the north and west over Fresnaye as well as at the rear of the site. The site falls very steeply and due to the high elevation of the road and the restrictions on the building form, the house is raised above the property on high columns. The house includes three-storeys accommodating three en-suite guest rooms on the ground floor, with a plant area and a staff flatlet at the rear. The first floor is the main living level, with a large living room and dining room opening to a covered and uncovered pool terrace. The kitchen is positioned to enjoy views through the glass roof towards Lion’s Head. The entrance hall is accessed by gentle steps from Head Road preceded by a glass-roofed external lobby space. The second floor accommodates the master bedroom, dressing room and a light-filled en-suite with views over the pool below.

Newton Console by Boca do Lobo


01

This strange cluster of glossy, black and gold spheres is an apple inspired table “Newton Console” by Tinto-based design company Boca do Lobo. The table is ideal for living rooms and hotel lobbies with a modern aesthetic. Made from aluminum and covered with a high-gloss varnish, the table reflects light and pretty much anything surrounding it crisply, adding an extra dimension to this baroque-à-la-mode console. “We design for surprise,” says Boca do Lobo’s CEO Amândio Pereira.
